Walk on the Moon with the Moon Shoes
Moon shoes, as the name suggests are shoes designed in such a way that they give a feeling of walking on the moon to the wearer. To put it simply, they have a cushioning in the sole which gives a feeling like bouncing on a trampoline or in low gravity. They are also known as anti gravity boots or mini trampolines for the feet. These shoes were introduced first introduced in the 1970s. Back then, they were made of metal and hence were heavy. They were supposed to be worn over regular shoes. In the 1990s, Nickelodeon re introduced these shoes in a much improved version. They used plastic material for construction and added springs to give the trampoline like effect. These shoes were first seen on the television show Double Dare of Nickelodeon, where they became an instant hit with children.
These days’ moon shoes are made from very good quality plastics and are extremely comfortable as well as durable. They also have adjustable straps to fit over the child’s regular shoes. Sometimes they also have added features like anti slip soles.
